bob hope. the troops love me. we have a big big hour and the iq will go way up. alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> announcer: heard around the >> announcer: this is the "full court press." the "bill press show" live on your radio and on current tv. >> bill: we're talking about the war on working families now. the latest battle front is the state of michigan. by the way didn't mention there in the first segment that the koch brothers, of course, are right in the middle of all of this. the "the obama hate machine" having failed to dislodge obama now failing again to destroy labor unions. they were

into yesterday's. some republicans are coming around on improving higher tax rates for the wealthy. bob corker said on fox news sunday, obama does have the upper hand on taxes. oklahoma representative tom cole said on cnn's state of a union if brought to a vote they would pass the house. that goes against speaker boehner's tone who seems to believe obama's plan would not be able to pass both chambers of congress. as far as what americans think of the president right now that is pretty evenly split. the new politico battleground poll just out today has his approval rating at 50%. more than billcat bill press" is coming up after our break. join us in the chat room at current.com/billpress. see you there. viewer for capella university. matter. >> i work with adults with developmental disabilities. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were so helpful when they didn't even have much themselves. seeing people and their hardships made me want to make a difference in people's lives to give them hope. receiving a masters degree would open the doors for
